MATH HELP ME PLZZ

The school library has 2,469 books. Twothirds of the books are paperbacks. How many books are paperbacks?
HELP I don't understand any of this!!

suppose I told you that half of 10 books are fiction. How would you figure that out?
You multiply 1/2 * 10 = 5
So, the same thing here. "of" usually means you multiply. Twothirds of 2469 is
2/3 * 2469 = 1646 
2/3 B=P
2/3 *2469=P
solve for P 
Basically all you have to do is multiply 2/3 and 2,469 and you'll have your answer.
